Preview: The Costume Designs of ‘The Marriage of Figaro’

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Costume designer Amanda Rae Janke, a third-year graduate student, will present her thesis work with her 18th-century inspired costume designs for CCM’s upcoming production of The Marriage of Figaro. Designing for her first opera and her first set of costumes for the 18th-century, Amanda had the challenge of researching the time period to design the realistic costumes. In addition, her costumes were integral to the plot of the opera as well. One example is a cloak that switches hands quickly between two female characters in a comedic scene of mistaken identities.
